Today is Castlevania: Aria of sadnessits 20th anniversary, so in honor of its two great decades, we’re reposting this article to round up and rate every game in the series on Nintendo consoles. (the break — Aria rated quite highly on the list below.) Enjoy!


The Castlevania The series has a rich history on the Nintendo console since the original game first appeared on the Japanese Famicom Disc System in 1986, and then on the NES a year later. There may be one or two major releases from Konami’s vampire slaying catalog that are still missing on Nintendo platforms (we’re looking at you, Symphony of the Night), but the majority of the series can be found on Nintendo consoles.

But where should you start if you are new to the Castlevania series? Which Castlevania game is the best? Those are tough questions, but we’ve done our best to put together a ranked list of the best Castlevania games (on Nintendo consoles) below. The series has many highs, plus a few very lows, and features two distinct styles: the simpler right-to-left style of the original games or the more expansive style of the games created by Koji Igarashi. produced – sometimes referred to as ‘IGAvanias’ – in spirit with Nintendo’s Metroid series to give birth to an entire genre’Metroidvania‘ video games.

For Switch owners, Castlevania Commemorative Collection will obviously be your first port of call, with a more recent version Castlevania Pre-Collection also contains one of the best games in the series. And there’s always the unaffiliated Koji Igarashi Bloodstained: Rite of the Night once you have used up all the Belmonts below. The Switch version isn’t perfect, but it’s improved a lot since launch and is arguably the closest thing fans get to Symphony of the Night on Switch until Konami decides. Turn on Symphony of the Night on Switch.

We’ve included a few side stories and oddities, but that’s enough. Wipe those bloody tears away, and let’s go kill some vampires.
